Why should you care about social media?

I had a great time at the 2009 PMI North America Global Congress in Orlando. The PMI New Media Council presented “Why Should You Care about Social Media?” “.
Cornelius Fitchner (PMPodcast), Bas De Baar, and I (pmStudent), collaborated on our segment. It focused on the use of new tools that allow virtual teams to collaborate and manage each other.
We practiced what was preached …. I’ve used some of these tools for a while myself and we used them together to present with Bas in Holland, Cornelius (and Switzerland) in California and me in South Dakota. (Kudos Loyal Mealer, who introduced me to Vyew.com and has been a great resource for me on many projects.
This is a silly theme and we are not actors. However, it’s worth taking about 15 minutes to review, especially if you’re concerned about working remotely with people. We only showed a few free tools this is not an endorsement of the tools we used, and there are many other options.
Bas created the video as part of ProjectShrink’s video podcast. Click here to see the video window.
(Bas is the one who cannot pronounce Gouda. I’m the goofy-looking guy in the red shirt. Cornelius is now on Skype with us.
